Still being used by Glenway Chevrolet. For years before that, it was a bingo hall. A very popular one, too.

After this cinema venue closed it became a Knights Of Columbus Hall before resurfacing, years later, becoming an Ackerman Chevrolet showroom. Ackermans were owners of several moviehouses in the Price Hill-Covedale area starting with The Glenway, The Sunset Th., and The Covedale Theater.
